Most of us are aware of the feeding of the 5,000.

They all ate and were satisfied.

Mark 6:42

But we often forget that this happened after an already very long day. Jesus and the disciples were tired and needed to get away, but the people followed them and Jesus had compassion on them. So He fed them; first and foremost with the Word through His teaching, then through bread and fish.

The second miracle is the one we remember, but in its doing gave evidence to the true miracle of Him and the Word!

The question is: what are you hungry for? Food that perishes or the Bread of Life Himself?

By all means, decide where you are going to eat after worship, but know that you have been fed with the Word here and now!
